What Favre has done though is not even in the same ballpark as MJ. MJ has a gambling problem, unwilling to use his platform for social change due to concerns about his endorsements, and he's an awful teammate to those who can't play at the same level he expects them to be. He is an Asshole sure but nothing like Favre.
Favre, now on multiple occasions it sounds like, has gone out there and literally stolen money from the poorest of the poort in that country for pet projects and fame. What he's done is simply inexcusable.
